heavy metal holiday!

we're still rockin' the metallics at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and you still have loads of time to join us, which we hope you will! this week my card features silver and copper... not a combination i've tried before but i have to say i really like it:

idea-ology metallic cardstock background in silver, embossed with a sheena douglass e/f from the crafter's workshop; baubles handcut (using my own homemade templates) from strathmore watercolor paper painted with prussian blue colorburst; glitter copper tape, pearl brad and bling strips: eyelet outlet; copper embossing paste: dreamweaver; grey cardstock cardbase: bazzill; doily, lace and copper giftwrap from my stash; ink: colorbox; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

i'm still fairly well smitten with the idea-ology kraftcore metallic cardstock, so this time i've used it as my background panel. a concept i was 100% happy with, until it came time for photographs. (...grrrrr...) because seriously, even when embossed and sanded, this stuff is *SHINY*! I'm still loving my gloriously dramatic prussian blue colorburst, as well, which i've painted onto watercolor paper and then later added copper accents in the form of embossing paste for the larger ornament and a diecut poinsettia on the smaller one. i've trimmed the baubles with eyelet outlet bling strip hangers, a pearl brad, and there's a bit of glitter copper tape peeking out in the background there, too.

this week i'm linking up with the paper players (PP372) who have a very very cool sketch ...that i rotated!
